E3 Finished as Big Exhibs Pull Support [Aug. 4th, 2006|04:29 am]
Nintendo DS News

The ESA will today seek to salvage some good from the wreckage of E3; but the spectacle that has held the industry in thrall for 12 years is at an end.</td></tr><tr valign="top"><td class="" colspan="2">

Click here for ESA's confirmation of this story's content.

And here for our analysis of E3's collapse... 

Image As Next-Gen exclusively reported Sunday, all major exhibitors have effectively pulled their support from the show, prompting the majority of game publishers to also cancel plans for high-cost booths. The ESA will make an announcement later today that will attempt to add some gloss to this catastrophe, with some form of media-focused boutique event - branded E3 - taking its place.

Some gullible journalists, evidently blinded by a desire to do-down a rival scoop, have taken this as evidence that E3 is alive and well and merely being 'downsized'. But this euphemism doesn't change the facts. The decision by big manufacturers and publishers to walk away has left ESA in damage-control mode. As we reported yesterday, E3, in its present form, is dead.

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) shindig has been a staple of game industry life since the mid-1990s. However, the larger exhibitors have jointly decided that the costs of the event do not justify the returns, generally measured in media exposure.

Publishers believe the multi-million dollar budgets would be better spent on more company-focused events that bring attention to their own product lines rather than the industry as a whole.

Well placed sources say the news that larger exhibitors were pulling out had prompted urgent meetings among publishing executives. They decided that, without the support of the larger software publishers and hardware manufacturers, there would be no point in continuing.

Whatever is announced today will be no more than a fig-leaf. The days of an industry event attended by all the major publishers, spending big money, are gone.

Calls to ESA staff are not being returned at present.

The Settlers Arriving on DS [Jul. 16th, 2006|02:41 am]

The Settlers arriving on DS

The PC strategy franchise will make its console-gaming debut this November on Nintendo's portable.

A long-running PC strategy-game franchise is about to settle on the Nintendo DS, marking the first time the series has ventured onto a console or handheld system.

The Settlers for the Nintendo DS, the latest entry in the series of PC strategy games that began in 1993, will see release on Nintendo's handheld in November, publisher Ubisoft said. Making use of the system's unique functions, you can swap the dual screens of the DS to use the DS stylus on both game views.

The Settlers is an economy-building strategy game, in which players control a group of pilgrims who arrive on an island. There, they must build roads, connect towns, forage for food, construct buildings, mine for resources, build a strong military to take on invading forces, and perform other civilization-building tasks.

The Nintendo DS version will feature four races of people (Asian, Nubian, Roman, and Viking) who can spread out across seven continents. The different land environments range from forests and lava to ice and swamps. Two campaign types--world and Roman--and a free-play mode round out the list of announced features.

The franchise began on the Amiga--an early hybrid of a personal computer and video-game console released in the 1980s--before adopting the PC platform with a string of releases starting in 1996. Last year's Heritage of Kings: The Settlers was the series' most recent game release.

The Nintendo DS version of The Settlers is not scheduled to be the series' only appearance this year, though. A graphically redone version of the first Settlers sequel, to be called The Settlers II: The Next Generation, is planned for release in the fourth quarter of this year.

From Game Politics

"Kotaku is reporting - and a Nintendo rep has confirmed for GamePolitics - that Nintendo of America sent President George W. Bush a gift for his 60th birthday, which is today.

The prez was comped by NOA with a DS Lite as well as a copy of popular DS title Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day. So how will the gift be recorded in the Federal Registry?

Nintendo DS Lite - $129.99

Brain Age game - $19.99

Avoiding wars based on false WMD info - priceless"

Seems like a solid idea to me.

Nintendo DS News


New news for the remake of Squres classic for the Nintendo DS:

From Games are fun

"We've got some new screens showing off the various modes of transporation available in Square Enix's DS remake of Final Fantasy III, which is due out in the US on October 3rd. Though it's been said like a billion times already, it's worth repeating that this is the Famicom Final Fantasy III never before released in the US, not the SNES Final Fantasy III (properly called Final Fantasy VI) everyone knows and loves. "

More below, plus gameplay videoCollapse )

Also new screens from Final Fantasy Crystle Chronicles: Rings of Fate.
